The main theater in Rotterdam, located right in the centre of town, is the Rotterdamse Schouwburg. This is really one of my favourite spots in the city because I am a real theatre buff. At the start and half-way during the season they host the festival ‘De Keuze‘ (where they pick out the best performances from all over the world). It is also a location for the world famous International Film Festival Rotterdam which takes place in January-February. And the big pop concerts of festival Motel Mozaique (in April) are hosted by the Rotterdamse Schouwburg. In May the focus is on modern dance.
The Rotterdamse Schouwburg is also the home of some theatre groups and dance companies. Famous dance companies like Conny Janssen Danst and the Scapino Ballet have their opening nights here. Young and modern theatre comes from Wunderbaum. It is partner of the Ro Theater (check the Ro Theater article) and Wunderbaum. The big Christmas productions of the Ro Theatre are staged at the main hall of the Rotterdamse Schouwburg.
Conclusion: never a dull moment in the Rotterdamse Schouwburg.
